Mark Wahlberg Says ‘There’s No Fooling God’ When It Comes To What’s In Your Heart

Mark Wahlberg Says ‘There’s No Fooling God’ When It Comes To What’s In Your Heart

By Movieguide® Contributor

In a recent interview, Mark Wahlberg spoke about how prayer is an important part of his daily routine. 

Wahlberg follows a strict workout plan and diet to stay in shape for his many action movie roles, from intermittent fasting to doing cold plunges. 

One of the most important parts of his daily routine is prayer. 

“I pray,” Wahlberg said when asked by GQ if meditation factored into his schedule. “I’m always kind of in my own head, so I’m a deep thinker, but meditation, no, not really.”

The actor appears fearless when it comes to conquering new roles or projects, but Wahlberg revealed that there is one thing that intimidates him. 

“I fear the Lord,” he explained. “I know that I’m going to be judged on what I do and where my heart is. If there is inequity in my heart, then I can’t be rewarded for what I do. There’s no fooling God so I have to go do that work.”

He continued, “The way that I conduct and carry myself, whether publicly or behind closed doors, those are the things that I know I need to worry about and so that’s what keeps me focused.”

Wahlberg often speaks about his strong Christian faith and how prayer is an integral part of each day. Movieguide® previously reported:

Actor Mark Wahlberg says a prayer of gratitude every morning because he knows “faith is the most important thing” in life.

“Faith is the most important thing. That’s how I start my day every day,” said the INSTANT FAMILY star in an interview with Caron Butler for Tuff Juice podcast. “By the time I open my eyes, before I turn the light on or do anything, I am kind of saying my prayers. I go in my prayer room and take that 15 or 20 minutes to express how grateful I am,” Wahlberg continued.

Over a year ago, Wahlberg made headlines for his extremely regimented schedule, which showed his commitment to prayer.

Wahlberg has starred in major Hollywood movies like TRANSFORMERS and LONE SURVIVOR, but posits that he knows God provided him a platform for a reason.

“I know that God didn’t bless me with all this to say, ‘forget about where you came from and just go off and do you and have a great life,’” Wahlberg said. “There is now an opportunity and responsibility to give back and inspire other people to say no matter where you come from or what obstacles you may face, if you actually go and do the right thing…good things will happen for you.”
